The slipcase for a collection collection of brochures detailing the history and culture of Lowell's diverse neighborhoods. It also includes its own brochure about Lowell's neighborhoods, and a guide to restaurants in Lowell.
"The Lowell Historic Board’s National Register of Historic Places brochures were a community engagement and outreach initiative undertaken in the late 1990s. The intent was to mainstream the vast amount of historic information found in the National Register of Historic Places nomination/registration forms for the various historic districts on the National Register in Lowell’s neighborhoods. Utilizing historic and contemporary images, each brochure focused on the historic development, architecture, and historical figures in the various districts. There is a wealth of information in the National Register forms and the brochures were a vehicle that helped get this information to the public in a user-friendly format." —Stephen Stowell, Lowell Historic Board Administrator
